the realities of love and race

In the southern states of the United States, a black woman, Julia, and a white man, Herman, fall deeply in love. It's the year 1918 and interracial marriage is prohibited by law. As the couple pursue their secret romance they must face ferocious opposition, not only from the prejudiced society around them, but also their closest loved ones. As Herman begins to suffer the effects of the deadly Spanish Flu pandemic, Julia finds herself confronted with decisions which will alter her life forever.

Written by the multi-award winning novelist, playwright and actor Alice Childress, Wedding Band is a poignant social commentary on the struggles faced by people of colour and interracial couples during the era she was born into. Directed by Monique Touko, it's a moving masterpiece to witness, delving into the realities of race, class and injustice in 20th Century America.
